Biscuit baking

A weekend isn't complete without some baking. Yes I should probably not be eating cake and biscuits but these were just too cute to resist. 

I got this recipe from a book by the the Hummingbird Bakery - https://hummingbirdbakery.com. I love their cake recipes. Isn't this what half term is for? Wasting my time doing things like this instead of marking the big pile of books I have waiting for me....at least I have a big pile of biscuits to help me through it now! Result!

Mat has taken the lemon loaf to work, so that is one thing that is no longer here to tempt me. Biscuits it is then.

Look at what I'm making! Today I have started designing my own coasters. I have been looking for some for ages to put in my new flat but cannot find any that I like anywhere! Why is it whenever you want something you can never find it? Anyways, I stumbled across these great designs on Poppytalk.

I am currently sat here twiddling my thumbs waiting for the paint to dry so that I can get onto the gold spray painting! Fingers crossed my results are as pretty as the online ones.

How pretty are these pastel and gold coasters? Perfect for my new dining table!

All Hallows' Eve is nearly here!

I am not a huge fan of Halloween, I never did go trick or treating. However I love the idea of one day hosting a fabulous Halloween party just so I can have an excuse to dress up and wear scary make up, whilst eating cake and other Halloween inspired treats I have of course made from scratch....hmm, until then. Here is the start of my more minimal, low key Halloween festivities. Pumpkins ready to carve (check back for the results!) and some cards, any excuse for some crafting and to distract myself from the school books I should definitely be marking. And as for Halloween, let's hope my baby godson enjoys his card and the treats I have got him when he comes to call. At least he can wear a Halloween outfit and eat sweets and get away with it...maybe I'll leave the parties and dressing up for next year. I might have that party (and my own excuse) planned by then.

Here I go...

So, my first ever blog post! I am hoping that this blog will give me the chance to share my interests with other like-minded, amazing and inspirational people :) I have browsed blogs for such a long time but never had the confidence to start my own. I love talking, and love writing, so what better way to put them together than in a blog? I love reading blogs and seeing peoples personal journeys and experiences and I am hoping that this is the start of mine...so, here I go!!!

And to say thank you...a link to a blog that gave me the confidence to go and do it! This lady is so inspiring, her blog is full of inspirational ideas and everytime I browse her site I leave hoping my life is one day going to match up....i'm still trying!!!!!
